Stream of consciousness review: True Lies

Welcome back onto the Schwarzenegger train, next stop, an ass kicking. Back with James Cameron too, that has to be a good thing. Tom Arnold!? Good god no. Bill Paxton!? Good god yes. Wait, this is the start of Metal Gear Solid. This is significantly colder than Arnolds last ingress into occupied territory. No speedos […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: Heathers

Ryder. I ride hard for Ryder. All day. Slater. Christian Slater is admittedly more of a mixed bag. Fantastic in Mr Robot though. I don’t think any movie features croquet quite so heavily. Veronica rocking something from the Beetlejuice collection there. Dyslexic serial killer handwriting alert. What is your damage! This movie is so very. […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: The Running Man

  Those are some seriously dodgy 1987 CGI running men right there. “By 2017 the world economy has collapsed. A POLICE STATE, divided into paramilitary zones, rules with an iron hand” this is another one of those unnervingly prescient Trump future movies isn’t it? These days you don’t even have to tell a guy to bomb […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: Roadhouse

  I’ve actually seen roadhouse before, and I’m pretty sure I thought it was good. Prove me wrong Swayze. Turquoise bolo tie. Bold. Swayze just brushed off getting stabbed like it was a papercut. Why isn’t autocorrect bothered by “Swayze”? I’ve been headhunted for several jobs while shirtless and performing first aid on myself. Dalton […]

Demolition Man: Stream of Consciousness Review

Los Angeles 1996: riots, overpopulation, rampant gun violence, Sylvester Stallone, heavily militarised police presence, seemingly random terrorist attacks… is Demolition man a documentary? Phoenix Simon Phoenix. Maniac is the word I’d use to describe Wesley Snipes. In 1996 and in 2016. PHOENIX! This intro is almost as good as the 3DO Demolition Man game. I think […]

Stream Of Consciousness Review: Captain America The Winter Soldier

Wide open shots of the American capital as Fitness Man From the 1940’s undermines a minority with his superhuman superiority. “You’re no Jessie Owens!” The Captain does not miss polio, perhaps the most old timey of antiquated diseases. He also keeps a notebook of things he needs to catch up on (doesn’t even fill a […]

Stream of Consciousness Review: Commando

Garbagemen making early morning pickups is a low key way for an 80’s Arnold Schwarzenegger actionfest to begin. This couple kind of look like a proto Sopranos Tony and Carmela. This driveway is also very Sopranos. Scratch that the garbagemen were assassins and they just iced that guy. Cause the Garbageman caaaaaan! This Cadillac salesman […]
